Japanese custom knife maker Hiroaki Ohta takes your standard snap blade utility knife and elevates it with a custom hard wood handle giving you the best of both worlds. Built on a stainless steel Tajima slide platform this version comes with a Palo Santo Wood handle.

Brand new, direct from Hiroaki Ohta.

Blade: This non-locking utility knife has a slide operated blade that comes razor sharp. Once the blade is dull simply snap off the dull section and you are ready to go. Comes with two replacement blades.

Handle: The stainless steel slide mechanism is housed within a beautifully polished and contoured piece of Palo Santo Wood that is durable, comfortable in the hand and visually appealing. The fine wood handle brings pleasure to the most mundane tasks.

Palo Santo: Palo Santo is very dense and has a pleasing, incense-like scent. Also known as Lignum vitae, Palo Santo was traditionally used in everything from ship building to watch making and is the densest traded hardwoods.
